How to avoid a selfie solecism

Posted in NEWS By Maggie O' Sullivan

Are you about to post a holiday snap on Instagram? Boutique hotel experts at i-escape give their tips on how to avoid a selfie solecism.</p>


‘You can put yourself in the frame without having to focus on your face. Some of the most effective selfies are shot from behind, so find a willing volunteer to entrust with your camera and get posing,' says i-escape. This shot (above), taken at Relais Blu Belvedere on Italy's Amalfi coast, shows how it’s done.#LoungeLizard

‘Endless pool and beach shots can get a bit boring, so why not focus on a stylish sun lounger instead?' To demonstrate the point, the i-escape team has chosen these chic recliners at UXUA Casa Hotel & Spa in Trancoso, Brazil.#DrinksWithAView

‘Move aside the room with a view: a perfectly positioned drink instantly conveys that holiday feeling, particularly when accompanied by a beautiful backdrop,' says i-escape. It shot this poolside coconut juice at Sri Villas in Sri Lanka.#TakeAPew

The team at i-escape spotted this striking seating arrangement at Bude Hideaways in Cornwall. ‘Chairs seem to inspire particular creativity among furniture designers – perfect fodder for Instagram.#Lovingmytravelwrap 

As these two lovely images – taken by Lucy on England's South Coast and by Mary-Clare in Sonoma, California – demonstrate, cashmere is extremely photogenic. Post a picture of your own wrap using the hashtag #lovingmytravelwrap or send it to us at info@thetravelwrapcompany.com and we’ll post it for you.
